Respekt! I don't know how one can survive in that time machine that some people call debian stable.

All the better to see you can taste some fresh software :)

I'm with @George Standish, specially taking into account that security patches are released for stable/oldstable, and releasing them for testing usually occurs some days later.

But I wanted to get a bit involved in the release too, as I explain in my post: the plan is to diagnose issues, try to reproduce them... help a bit, if I can.

At job I stay in Wheezy, since having a stable system, and getting security patches ASAP is my priority there.

I use Sid on several of my boxes, but sometimes, rarely, there are major bugs that hang around for a month or so, like with PHP5 most recently, or Firefox crashing all the time, and that really really sucks. If you use Stable, you avoid that.

My main problem is that some key software packages are waaay behind the release.
